Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam well that it's your brother yet Abraham coming to you live from my home here in Perth, Western Australia, to your homes and devices all around the world through the wonderful vehicle of Islam channel. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah makes the next hour of time that we spent together one of Rama and blessing for myself and knew that Allah subhanho wa Taala facilitates for us all how you, you in the form of asking questions that could be considered a sadhaka for those who may benefit from them. Receiving an answer in sha Allah, and I pray that Allah
subhana wa Taala allows us to have alien menoufia knowledge that is beneficial to us, meaning that we utilize and put into practice and emulate in ourselves and teach unto others as a way of upholding and maintaining the tradition and the love of the sunnah of our whenever you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grants you how you in this dunya and akhira protects you and I from the sinfulness and the harm that we may inflict upon others Allah whom I mean Subhan Allah in the last few days, we have commemorated the wonderful start of our 1444 year of the hijab, which also brings to us the 10th day of Mahabharata, and the day of Muharram
is usually referred to as the day of Ashura. The day of Ashura was a celebrated day before the advent of Islam was delivered to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam by the nation of faith that came before us, the people of Benny Surat II, and now want to be a solo Allahu Allah, you ascend them took a great command from the actions of the prophets that preceded him. Allah orders him in the Quran, whatever mail letter Ibrahim Hanifa. Follow the example of Ibrahim meaning in your towhid in your conduct, we honor the great prophets who came before us we know that Musa alayhis salam held the great esteem within the circles of the Prophet with our W Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
them to such a degree that during an ISR, ah well Mirage, as the prophets iclm received 50 obligatory prayers, he heard the Council of Musa Alia Salam, and it moved him to return to Allah with petition of lessening of that burden until we are now blessed with hamsters on our five prayers with the reward of 50 May Allah make you and I and our children and our progeny and future OMAP regular with our salah, Allah whom I mean, so we see that these two great prophets, Ibrahim and Musa were great examples for the prophets why Selim Ibrahim in the belief and Musa in the actions of belief, all of that, of course comes to us in our belief as Muslims, that the way of the tradition
of the prophets I seldom completes the prophetic model that was destined by Allah for humanity to mold themselves and to make as a modality of their life as sunnah and a tradition of practice of belief and action. We pray that Allah subhanaw taala allows us to fulfill our duties to our whenever you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I would love for Him through fulfilling our practice of his tradition. The month of Muharram, of course, is a notable month. And in it in the 10th day, there were notable moments that were celebrated by human beings, all throughout antiquity, of the most celebrated occasions is beginning in the time of Noah Alayhis Salam, we are informed in the
books of tafseer that Costello talent God that when the ship finally settled upon the mountain of God and knew and no one is people, and the livestock descended from it that that was on the 10th of Muharram. Were also made aware that the 10th of Muharram is the day of the release of the people of Bani Israel eel, and the bondage that they were in under the tyranny of the tyrannical frown. This is the day of savior. It is also mentioned in some of the books of tradition, that this is also the day that you will notice is saved from the whale. And therefore what you see as a regular theme throughout these moments, is that on this particular day, Allah subhanho wa Taala momentously
changed the anxiety and worry of one people and
replaced it with the serenity of their dua being answered and the comfort being provided. And that's why that reward of fasting the 10th day of Muharram is that one is relieved of their sins that brings us anxiety for us as an ummah. Also we see the relief that was provided to the grand son of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, Al Hussein Ibn Ali Ignat Fatima as the Herat Binti, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what are the Allahu anha? One XlG hub? I leave I'd be applied liberati Allahu Anhu was there then? What year come Hilson? Well, my habit, live bait. May Allah increase our love for the beta of the prophets I send them that his son Al Hussein, who was
very similar to Prophet Musa alayhis salam. There's a narration where the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam would observe Al Hussein at times stuttering and stammering so one of the things about Hussein is that Kana who, who suddenly said his tongue was tied, it was held back so when he would speak he would stutter he would stammer for Colin never use Allah, Allah, Allah He was selling the prophet would always wait for him to finish what he wanted to say. One day the Prophet smiled at his struggle. And he said what he thought I'm making Musa he inherited this particular speech impediment from his great ancestral uncle Moses Alia salaam, and therefore you see the victory of Musa that was
delivered to him by Allah subhanho wa Taala by splitting the sea by relieving the anxiety can in Nairobi, c'est la vie. And I have my lord who will give me victory when they thought that people have been here strong enough that they will be captured. My path has been given to me by Allah Subhan Allah to Allah in the same way, Al Hussein and Malley are the Allahu anhu, the grandson of the prophets, Isaiah limped, he was also given victory in another way, he was relieved of the burden of the dunya relieved of the burden of leading and OMA relieved of the burden of his burden of being questionable for that through his martyrdom, and through the vile, inflicted death that was placed
upon him that were ennobled to him in our history as Muslims and defiled those who murdered him, Radi Allahu Anhu one and he elevated the VSI sell them a per year been up for healing hitting Allahumma me what is the context therefore of Muharram and the day of pogrom, what we see the victory that was given to know the victory that was given to Musa was given to them as a relief of anxiety also for him for saying, even though we may look at it from the worldly eyes, that perhaps it brought about his terminal end in this life, it actually brought him to that being of the Sayed, the youth, the master of the youth of the people of gender. It was known even in his early life,
that the prophets I send them said that they would be Chabad be an agenda, they will be the masters of the young people agenda. They knew that their days would not go into old age. We have our first caller on the line and we always anticipate and love to receive your calls. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grant us Hainan Baraka through them Allahumma Amin As Salam Alikum caller, how can I help
As Salam Alikum caller, how can I help?
Okay, we still got a fault. Just carry on, please. Fair, insha Allah, we're just working to get the phone lines up and running again. I see that the they have kind of typed out the question for me, it's popped up on my screen.
It says, If all seafood is halal, does that mean we can eat sharks? Now there is a little bit of a difference of opinion amongst the people who follow the Metalab urban Imam Abu Hanifa, who hold that crustaceans or things that are not fish things that are not
living exclusively in water, that if they are taken out and that they can survive, are exempt from being of the fruit of the ocean. The prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, he said in the authentic hadith narrated by the man Muslim, as a seafaring person, a sailor came and asked he said O Messenger of Allah, can we make we'll do with seawater, you know, it's saltwater. It's got dirt in it. It's got sand can we make you know, it's not something we can drink? Can we make we'll do it. So the prophets of Allah
It was a lamp. He said, Matt Oh, who taught him it's water is clean, meaning spiritually clean to make will do with it. And it's made that the animals that die out of taking it from it or die in it or halal for us to consume, you don't need to slaughter rates are bleeded or say Bismillah. It is allowed to eat of the fish of the ocean. That's how it's understood by the member of kaniva. So he excludes things like lobster like shrimp or prawns. He excludes that. And he says, because these are things that can survive outside the water. They are not known to the be the food of the people at that time as being something that was consumed and that there were narrations for it. However, the
majority of the Imams they hold that things that live exclusively in water, even if temporarily can live out of water for a little bit of time that they are seen as halal, and that would include sharks. So shark meat, even though it's a predatory animal, it is considered Halal amongst the majority of the Imams. This is different though to alligator or crocodile, which is a land moving an animal that then swims in water. There's a difference between a shark and a crocodile which is seen as being questionable and unacceptable to consumed by Muslims not deemed as Halal by by many, by the majority in sha Allah. We have another question that's come online. It says
after the Salah do is made after it should be made after the Sunnah, or after the fault or after the completion of both. So the question I'll paraphrase it should we make dua after the prayer after we finish the obligatory prayer so local book, or should I make dua after I pray to raka which is the Sunnah of Salah to look or should I do it after both of them?
The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in completing our prayer is that dua is made in all of those occasions. So the first place and this is a forgotten sunnah and in sha Allah we revive it may Allah make it so that Algeria for all of us and for the one asking this question, one of the Forgotten sunnah of the Prophet IS LM is right before you say As salam o alaikum. Salam or Aleikum right before you end your Salah with es Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah is a moment of accepted DUA and it is narrated that the prophets I seldom would say, Allah who met at any other the critica worship Cricket was in a bad attic or in other Euro Allah who met in the cellar women
Casella tabula rasa Yeah, they'll generally will crop and there are different formulas and durations for those particular derive the profit would also say Allah Romania will be coming Pignatelli Matt here will my mad
woman fitness the other will probably women other than now on fitness intimacy hit the gel. So we would make particular dua before saying SLM on equal once you've set a set Armonico Dinoland are out of the prophets. I send them either Estelle Fula Estelle federal law, state and federal law. The reason we say a Stanford Law on the profit encourages us to do this is because as much concentration and good Nia we had in the beginning of our prayer and during it, there is always something that we could have done better and that's why we say oh Allah we ask you to help us to pray better. So we say oh Allah forgive me and pardon me, oh Allah wipe away my sins because of my prayer in honoring
you and any mistake I made in my sada Oh ALLAH forgive it for me. Yeah, Mohammed Rafi made a stepping stone for Allah a selfish Allah. What used to be said immediately after the holidays after the Saddam was that the Prophet would ask for forgiveness. And then he would recite particular decree from the DUA from the Quran and from his tradition, so things that he would definitely say were love Illa Illa Allah Who is she Shan li kala level mon ecolabel hamdu Awad Achalasia Kadir, this could be sent one time three times seven times 10 times, he would also encourage us to recite Acharya to kursi after every coolness on that dura coulisse. Allah the prophets I seldom said the
one who reads AYATUL kursi after every obligatory prayer, that their seat in Jannah their place in Jannah is assured the moment they depart this world they enter it may Allah make us of the Allah Amin be regular in AYATUL kursi. At the end of your five daily prayers, He would also encourage the Sahaba to Say Subhan Allah Subhana Allah says
Han Allah Subhan Allah Subhana Allah 33 times and hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah 33 times Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar 34 times and in one rule a 33 times and to say La ilaha illallah wa that would actually color the whole model called Al Hamdulillah. adequately Sheikh Qadir to complete 100 Those should be done either before or after the Sunnah. Now for some people, there is the habit that immediately after and is still far, they stand up and they fulfill the Sunnah. Then they make the DUA because now you'll have time it gives you an opportunity to sit longer with Allah in either case, before the sunnah or after sunnah. Don't leave it empty, without the mentioned
and the remembrance of Allah which is called dua, some people they forgotten that dua is not simply asking Allah for things, but it is also praying praising Allah. There's a beautiful Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari where the prophets of Allah Allah us Salam is described and Neville Bader salah, after the prayer fists suffer in his travel cannula You said he would not say he would not make to speak meaning he would not pray the Sunnah, but he would just simply make his dick and therefore although the Sunnah may be eliminated, when we are in the state of travel, the reminder of a remembrance of Allah should be ongoing Subhan Allah would hamdulillah without a doubt, Allah, will Allah Akbar, may
Allah accept that from all of us, Allahu Amin, thank you for the wonderful question. And all that comes of it, may Allah make it of a source of reward for us all. We have another question that's been typed out for me sent for me in sha Allah. It says, I said I'm on income. How can I understand that Allah is close to me or is Allah with me? And Allah Subhana Allah Anna vows to us in the Quran in surah Kahf of Prabhu, la comida have little worried that I am nearer to you closer to you than the jugular vein that runs within you. Meaning that the knowledge of Allah, the sight of Allah, the power of Allah, the ability of Allah, the hearing of Allah, the sight of Allah, the weakness of
Allah to all of our actions, is closer to us than what we know of our own self. Allah also says in Nima Akuma he says to Musa and Haroon I'm with you a smell when I see everything and I hear everything. So count on what to Ana. Allah says to the prophets on he said lemon Abu Bakr as they are in the cave, if you already saw Hebei he has an in Allah Hi Marina Allah is with us. So Al may yet the mayor of Allah that Allah is with us is established in the Quran. Allah is with some more than others depending on whether we have brought him close to us or not. And therefore the last verse of the first chapter reveal to the prophets I seldom is important. In surah, Allah Allah Quran
Bismillah robic, Allah the HELOC HELOC insane I mean I look across Europe Bukal acraman, Lydia I lemma Bill column at the end of that sort of the very last verse is a such that a verse that we make sujood voluntarily if we are able and we recite as Allah orders, profess Jude worked at him, oh Mohammed or own member Hamid make your prostration to me make so do to me and draw Menier be have pulled back to me. And therefore Allah is as close to you as you have asked Allah to be.
Allah is as near to you as you have access Allah into your life. For some of us, Subhan Allah, we have put Allah further away from us because of the choices that we make, and the ill intentions of our heart. But if our actions are inappropriate, but our intention and our Eman even if it is a speck of faith, Allah remains with us. Allah will never turn away from you if you turn to Him. Allah takes 10 steps to you. If you just take one step to Allah in the beautiful Hadith of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam. Allah subhanho wa Taala is quoted by the prophets of Allah Allah said, Abdi, My servant, Allah speaking to you and I
even know breakout. We'll take our first break in sha Allah and return back to that beautiful Hadith Bootsy where Allah Allah says to us that it
If we were to take a step to him, he would take 10 to us. If he if we were to walk to him, he would run to us Subhana wa Taala that he becomes a our power that we have in our life, the sight and the hearing that we have, that Allah will be a part of our life. If we bring in close to us, you are never distant from Allah. We're either Celica Eva and Eva in the Hadith. If they ask you about Me on the summit, say I am near sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah is always near us. I hope you will return back to me after our short break was said Mr. Alikum warahmatu Allah He was a cat
lot less on the island every now.
Send them on a calm for those of you following online, we're just taking a quick break. But I'm happy to take your questions online here on my social media in sha Allah. If you have any questions, please do share. I'm happy to assist with them.
Allahu Bedich Fiegel.
All right, we had this question last week. For some reason. There's a brother who seems to be hung up on this question. Are prophets infallible of sin? And we said yes, the prophets of Allah are protected by ALLAH from choosing immorality and sinfulness. This does not mean that they may not do something that Allah does not yet want them to do, although it's pleasing to Allah, such as Musa alayhis salam, climbing up the mount of tourists Aina before Allah has asked, so Allah says magic and why did you come so quickly and leave your people so it's not a sin of what he has done? But it was not requested by Allah. So when the prophets of Allah do something before they have been
requested, they may be rebuked by Allah for their earnestness, wala hooter Allah Allah if there any other questions please do send them in in sha Allah. Allah here Vedic Figo
yeah, I can hear your brother

Just a second, okay for reconnecting with me on the Instagram feed as well. We'll do our best in sha Allah to address your questions. We shouldn't be back live on Islam q&a In a couple of minutes. All right. SR is asking, Is it permissible for men to go to a mixed gym in a Western country? If there are no
if there are no male only gyms, and now this is a really interesting and controversial question. It's controversial in the sense that there are certain gyms that are different to others. So for example, if it's like a boxing club, if it's overwhelmingly male, there aren't as many females, if it's a particular class that they're doing, if it's a particular gym session that they're having, and it doesn't have the things that you and I would consider prohibited where there is that free mixing and mingling an unhealthy environment. And it would be appropriate for them in that sense, perhaps, but my reluctance to give a yes answer to this is due to the fact that for a lot of these
places, they are a go to place where things that are not normally accepted and tolerated within our homes as Muslims in our communities, our practice. We'll be coming back to some q&a shortly. So what I would say is no, I wouldn't give a general permissibility that they can go to a mixed gym. If they are going to a gym that to 24 hour place and they're choosing times where other people are not there, then we can kind of say
alright, we're getting back into our stream.
10 98765432 Let me know if there's questions Yeah. And your life as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam? Well, that sorry for that abrupt ending there, we did have some technical issues, as you're aware with receiving your phone calls, hopefully, those have been solved the chellah do try to access us and give us a ring insha Allah will do our best with that. So may Allah Subhana Allah grant all of us how you run Baraka, Allah. I mean, there's another question that's been typed out sent to us in sha Allah, we'll try to take a look at that. It says at auctions, there are items that were repossessed
due to debt fault, is it permissible to purchase such items, if the item being purchased is no longer considered the property as a seized item, it's no longer the property of the person who initially owes money to towards it. And legally, they are no longer entitled to it. So it is now free for purchase, then yes, then it is a lawful purchase Insha Allah, If, however, the auction is there, because they are forced to have their car there, and they're trying to get back as much money as they can, and they are able to sell it in other ways, they still retain the title. But this was just something that they you know, was was forced upon them that they are not able to get back their
And then it would be better not to purchase from that. So if the car if the item is no longer the individuals property who it sees from, and they have no legal claim to it, it is valid, if they still have a legal claim with it, and they're still contesting it, or it's before the courts or whatever it may be, then it is better to wait until that is solved and settled in sha Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala. Grant us how you and Baraka Allahumma Amin, if there are questions that you have, we do look forward to receiving them on our Islam q&a Answer service. I know many of you were trying to call earlier. And there were a little bit of problems with the phones, please do give us a
phone call Insha Allah, we endeavor to be able to answer those questions as soon as possible. Allahumma me there are other questions that have come in now as well.
Is it permissible to combine Nia of more than one action of worship together? Now that's of course a very generalized question. In certain cases, yes. So think of it this way if the actions are of a similar category, so there are two things that are sooner than yes, you can combine the NIA of two segments together. So for example, you walk
into the Masjid. The Advan has been called for Salah to do we know that the Sunnah is that we don't sit down in the masjid until we make to hear to Majid. We greet the masjid with to rock our prayer. However, we also know that if you pray before Salah to look for Raka you have met a Sunil more accurate that the regular habit of the prophets I send them so then you pray to Raka and to Raka and you don't pray another two to greet them as Did you just pre assume that the Toorak of greeting them as God is absorbed inside you doing the Sunnah of your doctor prayer. The reason both of them are of the same category, they're both actions that are sunnah done in the same place done through the same
purpose you get the reward of both in sha Allah. However, if the actions were of different categories or different levels, then there is a dispute amongst their own lemma. So for example, can a person fast on the 10th of Muharram
as the Sunnah of fasting the 10th of Muharram while also making it the intention of paying off a day that they missed in Ramadan money or the man will say no. The reason for that is Ramadan is fast is an obligatory fast, it's something that is worthy of for you to make it up. And that should take precedent. It can be done in this day. But the greater Nia is that it is done as an act that is separate so you wouldn't count that you will get the reward of being forgiven, but you don't count it towards meeting other restrictions and requirements such as the days of shot of shall well the six days of Sure well at somebody has made has to make up days for Ramadan, some are in a mountain
will say no, these are two distinct act with two distinct needs that are of different levels of sunnah and wardrobe, the wardrobe should be done before it Insha Allah, I hold that opinion of which is a minority view. But I feel the most valid view that if the action is in the spirit of fulfilling the greater obligation, then Allah's generosity supersedes and this was an understanding that I'm going to have Bob that later Mossad that many of the Imams had, that you can establish this act with that act, if they meet the same requirements in sha Allah, there are very technical differences, certain things that do require greater insight, what I would say to you insha Allah is that do what
is closest to the Sunnah of the Prophet. So I said let's try to fulfill what is an obligation before you seek to do that which is a purgatory or sunnah, and then maintain the Sunnah practice of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, as much as possible.
Another question do Muslim women have to cover their feet? This once again is an open to scholarly opinion. We know that hadith of OMA Salah model the Allahu anha she came and asked the prophets I seldom that women were asking about their prayer, do they need to cover their feet? Do they need to wear a sock or a hoof and the Prophet said no. So I said, rather let their their dress or their is out their waste sheet or you know that what they wore to cover themselves in their legs hang down a little bit that it covers their foot, so it was seen by most of the Imams that the top of the foot should be covered in Salah except in the opinion of the Imam Abu Hanifa wala to either on them, it
is better for our sisters to cover their feet, top and bottom of them, in particular in Salah, although there is a scholarly opinion and interpretation of the Sunnah, that it is valid to be left without being covered below to Anna Anna, some Muslims do a gathering
40 days after someone passes away, is there any significance to this? This is established from a different number of weak Hadith and different number of commemorative services that have happened of righteous scholars of the past. So the precedent of it is not from the time of the prophets I sell them or the time of the sahaba. This is something that later emerged in the OMA of the prophets I send them nevertheless, it's not something that should be of great contention or consume us too much. What is important, number one, that you should not believe that this is an obligation that if I didn't attend or if we didn't hold something
on the 40th day, for whatever reason, that somehow my father or my loved one will be punished on account of our negligence, that is a false understanding and a false belief. Because it is not established in the action of the word of the prophets I seldom, so if somebody tells you, you must do something on the 40th date, it can't be on the 39th or the 41st. It has to be on the 40th and that's it. Otherwise, you know, your, your loved one who has passed away will be punished or they won't be forgiven, or they will be angry with you or they won't enter gender or something silly like that. Then you say no, the Sunnah of the Prophet iclm does not confirm this. The second thing that's
important is that concept of gathering people to make dua for somebody who they love. And to remind them of their own mortality is a sunnah of the prophets of Allah or yourself. It is important for us to visit the grave to visit the disease to make dua for them at their grave to let them know that we have given sort of on their behalf through our actions of charity and drop for them. So visiting the graveyard visiting the disease, inviting people whose Islam is strong to be with those whose Islam is wavering, so that they help each other become more committed and help each other Remember, our own mortality is praiseworthy, but it doesn't have to be itemized on a particular date. And finally,
there is no religious practice of doing a particular type of day, or reading a particular type of Surah or having a particular type of food that must be had or must be ordered or must be eaten, or must be shared on that day. Sometimes you hear things where there's an expectation, you know, we have to provide this or the people have to read that or, you know, somebody must make this particular derive all of the Euro all of the Quran has high yield and Baraka. Nothing should be put forward except if authoritatively stated to us with the conditions met from our Sharia through our Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Let's try and take this call in sha Allah. May Allah subhanho
wa Taala make it easy As salam o alaikum? Caller How Can I Help
I mean, Monica Latinos equal me out of just a
It's often I will confess that failure is messy. And therefore,
you know, I don't know how to fix that issue.
So that's, that's a lot of people I talk to, they get into the same.
Yeah, they just miss it. And then we tried in the day before.
So that's one second is, do you know the 99 names of Botswana?
Yes, of course beneficial? Do we always do it after every farm salah? Are we do it once a day? And do we also when we finish it? Do we ask that one of course the appraiser that passed the qualities of those names to
maybe I don't know if I'm making any sense like several this
is that okay? Do that and how do you employ that? Particular especially the names some selected ones? And can I read in any order because it's only a fixed order and can I do it in any order? Okay.
The question is,
of course we have buyers
are neighbors non Muslim neighbors will be asking why didn't you tell us about the beyond the journey of self
you know, are really shallow
cetera educated. So how do I address them? Of what do I say to them or just pass on?
That's not gonna work.
There's a lot of work apart from going on.
Cause being kind of nice to them
when we have limited knowledge ourselves and
and, you know, God will alter issues. Yes. And we don't know how to converse really. If you're going for some vital Allah He made a critical thank you for your three questions. Uncle Allah He radically and having the level Salatu was Salam o Allah rasool Allah. So we'll go with the first question about remedying, sometimes being inattentive to our pleasure to prayer. So there are practical tips. And then there are spiritual tips. I'll begin with the spiritual one is at the time of praying your Isha prayer, make dua to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to make you from those who are attentive to the Fajr to prayer. And ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah with a genuineness and a purity of heart to
make you from those who are diligent in it. Number two is to give sadaqa and to make your charity and the action where you are asking a lot at the moment of your giving charity that Allah opens your heart to fulfilling that act of worship, that you can become more regular in that a bad aphasia myself and you and our families along I mean, number three, when it comes to our spiritual connection to the Salah, is to understand the special reward for a lot on fellowship, especially if we are to pray it in congregation, even if it's just another person in our home. So try to find that extra extra reward of praying the tragedy in our local masjid, or within our home with our families,
that it becomes an combined obligation, and we earn 27 rewards Insha Allah, the the practical side, the second tip is to do the practical things that are important. So perhaps drink a little bit more water that causes you to wake up due to the urgency of needing to relieve oneself, this is something that is relevant, especially for those who are getting a little bit older. Number two, you know, pay anybody after the age of 40. This is something that will help them in that regard. Number two, obviously, with things like setting your room, your clocks and your phone and put your phone at a distance from you that it has an alarm that is going to rouse you. Number three is to have a measure
to buddy somebody who is going to call whether it's knocking on your door or call your phone until you've roused and woken up, and there's no shame in allowing other people to know that this is something we want to improve. It helped me get there in sha Allah, and finally, are asleep early wake up early in sha Allah. The second question about the 99 names of Allah azza wa jal is that 99 names are only known to Allah. There are hundreds of names that are established in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet I Salam, what is meant by invoking Allah with the 99 names or with all of his names, the one who memorizes them, meaning the one who catalyzes the Quran, the one who lives
according to the Quran, which has all of the names in it, then they the one who adjust their life to the book of Allah, their draft will be answered the 99 names that are found in the hadith of Elohim and return within that are itemized a number are a wonderful place to begin, but do not assume that that is the end all of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala rather become acquainted with Allah by invoking him and Allah commands us when he let him smell husana for the room will be to Allah belongs his name's invoking with it. How do we invoke Allah with his names is that we engender them in our habit. So Allah Ya man, Allah, you are the merciful one. So begin in your life to adopt your
character to be more merciful. You will find that Allah will show you mercy. Yo Rahim. Excessive and mercy Yeah, I nee Oh Allah who is self sufficient, who is without need, who does not require anything for money.

What happened to the ancient
so the gospel the NG livery, Sammy has Salam is a revelation that was descended by Allah subhanaw taala. To visa It is the word of Allah, not the words of Jesus. It is the word of Allah spoken by Allah directly Teresa and not as what is found today in a paraphrased form of those who lived century after Isa. So the books that you find today in the New Testament, are not written by those who were contemporary or who lived in the life of SRA Salaam. They are written by those who narrate from those who narrate from those who lived with the Prophet Isa peace and blessings be upon him. But the Injeel at the time of Isa was a pure revelation descended, that some of its wisdom is
retained, some of its prayers are maintained, some of its he die, yet still reside amongst our Christian
brethren and humanity. So we do find that there are reflections of the truth in it, but we do not take the New Testament as the word of Allah, neither do they, no biblical scholar will ever say to you that the Bible is the literal word of God. Rather, they say this is the writing of individuals about what they believe the message of God to Jesus was.
what why is it
why is the word used for the Mercy ISA and mercy? The Gen Y is the same word Mercia use for both okay, this is an A good question just like a law fair. So the both of them come from the concept of mess. So Lisa, you said when he would come to somebody who was sick, or blind or deaf or unable to speak, can a yam Seto isa Allah He were to Allah Allah. And he said would make dua to Allah and then pass his hand over them wipe over them. This is called the mess and the EM sachet to wipe over them. The part so if there if he would wipe their eye while making dua to Allah to give them sight,
then they would gain their sight by the power of Allah wave hiding to evil however, in and Allah gave power to Risa to to do these miraculous occurrences by His power, not he says power. So the word MSC for isa means the one who wipes over or anointings and therefore one of the names of Jesus is that he is the Messiah, the Anointed One, Yemen Cephalon doneness at the JAL is called Al mercy for two reasons. Yam second out He will wipe all of the Earth, meaning he will travel through Eltek with his evil, the other understanding of their own Emma and know who met him so who lives in them usara is that his left eye is blinded, ma'am, so it's wiped out. He is unable to see it. So that is
where you get the word Mercia for Jesus
is an Missy for the job as being common, but not in description. Is there any commonality between the two? In short, we have another caller on the line. I said I'm Anakin caller How can I help?
I haven't become radical Salam,
a bicycle, I guess. Yes.
So I was having a debate with my mother.
Because unfortunately, my mother's first language is not English. And she suffers from few muscle pains and she was advised by one of the shots taken particular
when she came home, and she applied and she said it felt good, but she asked me to read the ingredients inside and I told her there is one of the ingredients is
called the CBD oil, which is, I believe is
obtained from the void. Yes.
Question, is it still permissible for her? Is it Hello.
So this is a product that's found in a in a pharmacy and it has a substance that, if it's ingested may cause an altered state of mind, but it's being applied. Topically it's being applied on the skin. So it probably has other sedatives or numbing, you know, other kind of numbing agents to help her with her knee pain or leg pain. You're saying? Am I understanding correctly? Okay, now, you know, I'm not a medical practitioner. So I can't speak about the medical aspects of it. But in terms of our Sharia, something that is haram to be consumed, does not necessarily mean it is haram to also be encountered or touched, right? So not because cannabis is something that the majority of Obama
would say should not be inhaled or smoke in the form of marijuana or things of this nature. That means that the plant itself cannot be used in other medicinal capacities or in other medicinal ways, or in non medicinal ways, the plant itself or the oil itself is not nudges is not an impurity in and of itself as a substance in sha Allah, what would be an impurity is to use it in a capacity to alter one's mental faculties or to use it in a way that is a recreational drug rather than prescribed medicinal, topical cream. So that is where the criterion would be drawn. So not because it has that substance in it that that means it is held on in its substance or in its form, it is haram in its
usage, if used even in
a simple capacity, or sinful way in sha Allah, I ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah humara openness in the habits issue Anta Shafi Shiva and Allah yo ha they will suffer, ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to send his healing, to put vigor and strength back with her that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah releases her pain and grants or comfort that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make you borrow to her Allahumma Amin. I hope you'll join me again next week in sha Allah with another installment of Islam q&a, your brother Yeah, hey Ibrahim was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
